  1. Pour the milk into a bowl; soak the rolls in the milk for about 15 minutes.
  2. Place the milk-soaked rolls, beef, pork, eggs, onion, parsley, marjoram, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; mix with your hands until evenly combined. Divide the mixture into eight portions and roll them into balls. Flatten the balls to make 1-inch thick patties.
  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet. Fry each patty in the melted butter until meat has reached an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (72 degrees C), about 6 minutes each side. These can be served either hot or cold.

I have wanted a perfect german meatball recipe for YEARS,this is even better than my german grandmothers!!!This tastes exactly like the meatballs I buy at a local deli that my family loves. I didn't have to modify anything in the ingredients, but I did sub the beef with elk, cause I have a freezer full!! I also rolled them in flour before frying. yummy, yummy yummy, I already wrote this in my family'a "holygrail" cookboook...

I made these meatballs to put into baked spaghetti. The flavor in this recipe is FANTASTIC...I served 6 people and even the picky eater ate them. I liked the method of soaking the bread in the milk beforehand, but needed to adjust the milk-bread ratio a bit because the meatballs ended up a bit mushy for my taste. RECOMMEND!

My kinder are very picky about food. They completely demolished this recipe. Very tasty. The butter is a must, it absorbed well by the bread. ( I used an extra roll to reduce the potential sogginess of zie meatball. Zer Gut!
